Program Information

The After School MTB Skills program runs each term for approximately 8 weeks depending on term length. Sessions are held on Thursday afternoons and groups will be arranged according to age, experience and skill level. The program focuses on the key skills of mountain biking and will develop the students:

  • Bike handling and balance
  • Control and trail reading
  • Technique (discipline independent)

Students will also learn about the non-practical aspects of mountain biking, including:

  • Trail etiquette for shared-use networks
  • Risk assessment and management skills
  • Knowledge of participation opportunities

Balance skills learned at slow speed enhance control & accuracy on faster trails
